She was born in Spain while her parents were on holiday but was never given a birth certificate by the Spanish hospital.
Instead she was handed paperwork by the Spanish hospital so she could come home - but was told by British authorities it wasn’t enough for her birth to be registered.
It means she has not officially existed for the last 20 years - and has had no way of proving who she really is.
When her friends started clubbing and drinking in pubs she had to stay at home because she had no ID.

In a moment of desperation she wrote to the Queen asking for help, but was told the matter was 'not a human rights issue'.

Published: 22 March, 2012

Nations will cut off rivers to prevent their enemies having access to water downstream, terrorists will blow up dams, and states that cannot provide water for their citizens will collapse. This is the future - as painted by a top US security report.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the organization that oversees US intelligence agencies such as the CIA and FBI, was commissioned by President Barack Obama to examine the impact of water scarcity worldwide on US security.

'US justice system becoming increasingly racist toward oppressed'

Press TV: In light of everything, this is a case of just one situation. But how truly is this a case for Zimmerman? And what does it say about the justice system currently in the United States?

Becker: It says that the justice system is really not a justice system at all - it’s a system of injustice. And it’s a system of injustice at which hands the poor people of this country and particularly those of oppressed nationalities, African-American, Latino, Pilipino, Native Americans and others have suffered for so long.

Court: skin colour good reason for cop ID check

German police have been told they can continue to single out black train passengers on the basis of their colour to check their paper, prompting allegations of institutionalised racism.

"If this is true, it is essentially illegal," Tahir Della of the Initiative of Black People in Germany (ISD) told The Local. "The authorities have always said the police do not do racial profiling."

"Non-white people already get a disproportionate amount of hassle from the police, if this is now being officially sanctioned, then it will open the floodgates," he added. "I am of course very shocked by this. It is basically racism."

A Koblenz court knocked down the complaint of a black German man who got into an argument with two federal police officers who demanded his papers while travelling on a train.

He refused to show the officers his identity papers, and was taken off the train to a police station where his rucksack was searched and his driving license eventually found, the court said in a statement.

The officers then accused him of abusing them, and took him to court. During the hearing one of the officers said that when deciding which travellers to check, he sought out those who seemed to him to be foreigners and said one of his criteria was skin colour.

This prompted the man concerned to sue, saying their conduct was illegal. But the judges at the Koblenz administrative court in Rhineland Palatinate ruled on Tuesday that the officers had not acted illegally, but were guided by their “border policing experience.”

In the case concerned, the man had been checked on a route which was often used for illegal entry into Germany, the court said, although it did not reveal where the incident happened.

Because only spot checks were possible on such trains, the people selected could be chosen based on their appearance, the judges ruled.

French tourists among world's worst: survey
Published: 12 Mar 2012 09:23 GMT+1

An international survey asking people to rank the world's worst tourists has placed the French just behind Americans and Chinese.

The survey, conducted by American travel website Living Social, asked 5,600 people their views about the behaviour of tourists from around the world.

Americans finished top of the survey, even among the Americans who were taking part.

20 percent of those surveyed ranked tourists from the US as the worst.

Chinese tourists were named by 15 percent of those asked and the French were just behind at 14 percent.

The tourists likely to be most welcome were from Australia, Switzerland and Ireland, all being named by just 2 percent of people.

The survey also found that around four in ten people had stolen something from a hotel room.

The most common items to be taken were towels (28 percent), bathrobes (8 percent), pills (4 percent) and remote controls (3 percent).

France is the world's top tourist destination and 2011 was a record year for visitors to Paris, with numbers up by 3.5 percent.

However, French tourists have been named and shamed in the past.

A survey in 2008 asked hotel workers in six countries to name the worst tourists, and those from France were considered the worst in Europe.

The biggest complaint was that the French were bad at tipping and more likely to be critical and rude.

World's worst tourists? Americans say ... Americans
Following Americans (20 percent), 15 percent of U.S. respondents said the Chinese were the worst tourists, followed by the French (14 percent), Japanese (12 percent) and Russians (11 percent).

We kept our rapes secret
One was attacked by a date. Another by her husband. A third by a family friend. Not one felt she could talk to the police. Here, they finally speak out

At first glance, Danielle, Tessa, Barbara, Terrie and Becky appear to have little in common. Yet they share a devastating secret — they were all raped, but did not report it.
And, it would seem, they are far from alone. A survey earlier this month claimed that an astonishing one woman in ten has been raped.
Yet more than 80 per cent of the 1,600 women questioned by a British website for mothers said they did not report their assault to the police, while 29 per cent said they told nobody, not even a friend or family member, of their ordeal.

'Shunned': Despite four interviews in the past month David Bruce (pictured) says employers have taken exception to his appearance
An employee at high street giant Next claims he was forced out of his job after getting 80 tattoos on his hands, neck and body in the space of just two years.
David Bruce, 22, says bosses at the store in Oldbury, West Midlands, told him to wear make-up over his skin etchings, costing him £40 a month.
Mr Bruce, from Halesowen, says he was humiliated when despite complying with the order he was moved from the shop floor to the stock room where he would be out of the sight of customers.
